“Good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2012

Large Italian restaurant but the staff are really nice and you don't feel lost in the crowd. Lovely food and the house wine is great.

“Not bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2011

Had Calamari for starters which was cooked well in a nice crispy batter. Carbonara for main, again tasted nice, Fusilli was used instead of Spaghetti (which worked well as it kept my shirt clean) but Bacon was used instead of Pancetta, this let it down a little. Rosco's had a modern looking décor and was both clean and easy to find. After reading the previous reviews I was surprised by the comments about the service, I found the waiters almost over attentive (I like mine just to bring my food and get the bill quickly), the only real problem I had was with the overpriced drinks. Overall = not bad. If I was on the Quayside and I wanted an Italian meal, I would go back.

“Seriously good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2011

Having read the reviews we were concerned when a friend recommended that we eat at Roscos - but we were very impressed, apparently it's under new ownership, our roast beef was delicious and very reasonably priced, staff who were all very polite
We would definately recommend a visit

“Very poor”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2011

We went to Roscos based on the £3.50 happy hour offer. When we had sat down and ordered drinks, the waiter then informed us only the margarita pizza was this price, the rest were £5.95. Seeing as we had ordered drinks and had 3 ravenous children, we decided to stay. My daughter then noticed pieces of chewing gum stuck to the underneath of the table. When we looked closer, there were lots more pieces - very disgusting! We looked under the next table which also was covered in gum. When the manageress came along, we told her. She said it was disgusting and she would mention it to her boss - and then left us on the same table! the waiter who collected our bill at the end was similarly unconcerned.
Pizzas were fine, but overall a very poor experience!

“We had a lovely night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2010

Been to Roscos several times since it opened and had great food but hadn't been for a while so was worried about negative reviews. Needn't have been cos we had a great night. Risotto & seafood pizza were fab. The thing I really like about this place is once you've finished your meal you can relax with a drink in the bar - you don't have to leave which you do at many restaurants. The night we were there friends were up the road at the theatre so they came and joined us afterwards for drinks and we had a great time.
